It's happened to all of us. You pull up too close to a curb and you hear that ominous “SCRAAAAPE”. Sometimes, you'll remember to pull away slowly when you return and avoid further damage. But if you drive a sports car, or sports sedan, or any vehicle with a low front end (even a Prius, for example), you can “hook” your lower fascia and experience one of the worst automotive emotions possible – backing up and having the curb rip your lower valence panel or even your entire fascia from the car! It happens every day to innocent drivers, but now there is a solution.
With a Curb Alert™ parking sensor, you'll no longer have to worry about damaging your vehicle's front bumper when pulling up to a curb or approaching the end of a steep driveway. Using Infrared LED technology, the Curb Alert curb sensor will reliably detect when you are getting too close to a curb and warn you with a short series of audible beeps, helping you avoid expensive damage to your vehicle’s front end. Having Curb Alert is like owning an affordable insurance policy on your vehicles front end - one most modern vehicles, the system pays for itself the first time it’s used.
The Curb Alert can determine the distance of your vehicle from a curb or other low obstacle. It sends out an infrared beam that is analyzed by the system to determine how far your vehicle is from the approaching object. If it determines that your vehicle is dangerously close to the curb, it alerts you with an audible in-cabin tone to prevent damage to your front bumper, spoiler or valence panel.
This is the one retrofit Radar Blind Spot monitoring and detection system that works like an original equipment-based system. Based on components validated by Toyota, it works closer to the systems found on new vehicles than any other system available. Newly updated and improved from our original system, Brandmotion’s radar-based system works with any vehicle with plastic fascias (all bumpers except metal pickup truck bumpers) and offers the only system based on automaker-validated original equipment components, resulting in true OEM-like fit, finish, and performance. Brandmotion offers the first aftermarket solution to include cross traffic detection as well as the first system to eliminate 95% of false triggers common in other systems.
The system uses CAN data to accurately obtain vehicle speed and is compatible with all vehicle makes and models 2007-current. Includes all necessary mounting hardware including under rear fascia sensor mounting brackets.
